    We go camping twice a year at sites that have no electricity for 9 days in a row. When you missed a perfect shot because the battery ran out of power, you find a solution. An extra battery is the answer. I let my battery run completely down before I recharge because of the extra battery. This helps the life of the battery.
    We once bought an extra battery that wasn't the name brand. It wouldn't charge well and wouldn't hold a charge. Now, we only buy the same brand for our electronics. It is worth the extra in price.

    The only thing I can say about this battery is that it doesn't have a very long life between recharging. I have two and am considering a third just to be safe! I do not do a lot of excessive functions that would explain the quick draw on the battery and the weather conditions have not been extreme in one direction or the other - the good thing is that the cost if good enough that I am comfortable purchasing more then a couple if needed.

          Comments about Canon NB-5L Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (3.7v, 1120mAh):

          I wanted a spare genuine Canon NB-5L battery, searched around for the best price, and ordered one. It was a bait and switch deal, and that dealer never had genuine ones. When I was informed they were "out of stock" and I could get a better aftermarket one for the same price, I canceled the order and came to B&H. The price was competitive, communication was great, delivery was fast, and best of all, it's a real NB-5L.

              Comments about Canon NB-5L Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (3.7v, 1120mAh):

              Learned a lesson with this type of Battery. That is purchase New Genuine Canon batteries from a authorised Canon retail source.
              The so called equal or refurbished battaries (be careful when thet say genuine original and they are NOT from an authorised dealer) did not proform nearly as good as the new factory Canon Originals. In my situation I previously purchased a second back up battary that I thought would proform like the original factory battery that was supposaly genuine from a non authorised dealer and was very disappionted. Ended up costing more money to replace. This time I purchased the original new Canon Battery and important from an authorised retailer that will be actualy guaranteed.

                I love photography and this camera is small, but the features are huge. Easy to use. Love that it is similar to my i-phone and touch the screen rather than having to push multiple buttons.
                Highly recommend.

                    I have tried other Canon NB-5L generic brand rechargeable batteries for my Canon camera and they have invariably quit working long before the original Canon-brand battery (which is still going, years after purchasing the camera, by the way)--usually within a year. This battery is the original Canon OEM battery and has lasted at least a year now (and I expect to last as long as my other Canon brand battery).

                    Buy quality when it comes to lithium batteries for important electronics such as cameras that need to work when you need them to on important occasions!

                          There isn't much to say, but the lithium batteries are lighter and last longer then any other type of battery. I have one already for my point and shoot camera that I carry always, and they last so long that I don't recharge frequently so when the battery does die, it is great to have another reliable backup to pop into the camera and continue taking pictures, then I can charge the other when I get home.

                            This battery was purchased as a spare with a camera purchase. I haven't used it yet but the one included with the camera seems to be doing better than I expected. I went to the NRA 500 Nascar race and shot about 115 stills and 12 minutes of video without any sign of the battery going down. I plan to use it full down before recharging in order to see how long it will last. Right now I am very happy with it. The way the one in the camera is holding up I probably wasted money buying this one as a spare.

                                This battery like most of the Canon batteries uses a chip to communicate with the camera as to its status. Beware, cheaper batteries omit this in their goal to achieve a higher mAh status. They will quit with only a few seconds warning. Bad enough with pictures, but may corrupt a movie file if it is in progress of being made.

                                I've purchased a no-name equivalent and it doesn't go nearly as far on a charge as the Canon brand battery. Although it is expensive, it is worth it.

                                  This battery lasts much longer than the generic I tried before.

                                    Bought a few of these batteries to use in my Canon S100 during an upcoming trek that we have planned where we will be without power for several days. They work perfectly and cant wait to take them into the field.

                                        Bought this as a back up battery for our family vacation to Disney World. I take a lot of pics of my daughters and use the flash often, so there were definitely a few days that this came in handy. Not much you can say about an oem battery, but it worked the way it was supposed to work. U didn't have to worry about it being counterfeit, or made by a third party - both of which have the potential to either not last as long, or damage the equipment. This battery didn't disappoint.

                                            Pretty straight forward. Real Canon battery, not a knock off. Charges up fast-ish, for the S100 puts out around 200-240 shots depending on your usage of the camera, and you know it won't fail you or have any other issues compared to a 3rd party battery.

                                                I bought this battery as an extra for my canon SX230 since I take a lot of pictures and usually tend to run out of battery on long days. It was a great value and I was happy that it was a canon original product unlike many that try to pass themselves off as canon and are not. Works great, charges quickly, and lasts a long time.
